1. Purpose

Boulder County Building Services (BCBS), is requesting Qualifications from Acoustic Engineering and Audio Visual (AV) Design Experts interested in designing, specifying and installing AV equipment for our Hearing room at 1325 Pearl Street, Boulder, Colorado 80302. This 1818 SF +/- conference room for 130 people is for the Boulder Office of County Commissioners (BOCC). The County Commissioners are required to record all the public hearings in this room. This space needs to be designed so visual and audio recordings are clear and understandable. Through this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process we intend to learn more about the options available for the acoustics and AV equipment for this room and to find out who is the best vendor to help design, specify and install this equipment. We will then post a Request for Proposal that clearly identifies the design specifications.

Not only does the hearing room need to be designed for audio and visual recordings to be crystal-clear, we also need the cameras in this room to capture the presenter and presentation.

The design\ engineering firms shortlisted from the RFQ will be invited to submit a request for proposal for design services. The awarded vendor will coordinate both the acoustic design for the BOCC Hearing Room as well as the AV Design and installation for the Audio-Visual equipment for the BOCC Hearing Room.
